Issues Connecting to linustechtips.com

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

As stated in another post, I have issues connecting to linustechtips.com through my normal ISP. Loading up floatplane.com works just fine, but the SSO through linustechtips.com fails as well. All HTTP(S) requests seem to be timing out. @colonel_mortis

 

My ISP is: RWTH Aachen University (AS47610)

Connecting IP Range (for my student dorm): 137.226.236.0/23 

 

I have inquired via ticket to find out, if our universities firewall is causing issues: but they're telling me that everything should be fine. Not sure if there's any additional information that would help... our router is a Cisco Catalyst 4500X, but since it's only routing traffic through to our univiersities data center and their firewall is supposedly fine, it shouldn't cause any issues.

 

Maybe worth a note: We currently only have a IPv4 subnet, but considering that IPv6's adoption is taking a while, this probably shouldn't cause issues either.

Do either of http://104.27.164.153 (expecting a Cloudflare error direct IP access not allowed) or https://linustechtips.com/cdn-cgi/trace work for you?

In the other topic, you said ping was working correctly - is the IP that it's using one of 104.27.164.153 or 104.27.165.153 (linux ping tells you, not sure about Windows)?


I don't work for Floatplane Media, so any Floatplane comments that I make are my own and may be incorrect or in conflict with the official view.

Windows does tell it too.

Neither work for me, just getting an "ERR_CONNECTION_TIMEOUT" in Chrome or whatever equivalent in other browsers.

 

When pinging linustechtips.com I get ICMP responses from 104.27.164.153.

Are you running linux/macos, or do you have the linux subsystem installed? If so, in a linux-style command prompt, can you run

traceroute -T -p 80 linustechtips.com

(you may need to use sudo), and also

traceroute -I linustechtips.com

Then post both outputs either here or in PM. The first will see where packets are being dropped when making a HTTP request, and the second effectively uses ping to see what route they should have taken.

That is weird, I was really expecting the packets to get dropped somewhere in the middle. What about

traceroute -T -p 443 linustechtips.com

(which tests it for HTTPS traffic)?

Looks like in this case packets go missing after hop 3 of the above traceroutes.

I guess I'll have to send another ticket and see what's up, since this should indicate an issue on my uni's end. Interesting that this only affects HTTPS traffic.

That is odd, especially if it only affects some sites. Hopefully they're able to resolve it.
